Trisco Rick 2014There are some very exciting things happening in the SSYC sailing community for 2015.  To start with, we are adding a fleet of Lightnings that will race on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer.   Since the fleet is starting with 5 skippers, the race committee has voted to officially recognize the lightnings as a one-design fleet at SSYC.  We expect to see at least 5 on the starting line; that is, of course, unless you decide to join this fleet.  The fleet, and the race committee, will accommodate any member that has a lightning and wants to join this fleet. 

Also, on March 14 we will once again be hosting a Safety at Sea seminar for anyone wishing to be prepared for unforeseen situations, weather and generally bad situations that may occur when sailing the open waters of Lake Michigan.  Even though this course is not required for participation in our offshore events (such as the Queens Cup) it is highly recommended.  This will once again be offered at a discount for SSYC and US Sailing members, but is open to the public. There are a maximum number of participants so you will want to sign up quickly when registration opens. 

Speaking of weather, we will also be offering a Great Lakes weather seminar on March 15, 2015.  This too will be offered at a discount for those attending the Safety at Sea seminar.  It is open to anyone and we encourage all SSYC boaters to attend this course if you are interested in our local weather patterns and their relative impact on boating. 

One last note; the Race Committee is now seeking volunteers for next season.  If you like to spend the day on water then we would love to have you on-board helping to run our regattas.  Training is minimal and this is a great way to meet people and enjoy our natural resource, and the regattas are always followed by a party.  We are also seeking volunteers to help work on the RC boats through the winter months.  If you are interested, please contact Rick Trisco for more information.

Sailing and Racing

SailboatsIf you are interested in sailing, and more specifically racing, there are ample opportunities to join one of our racing fleets, or to crew on one of the boats in those fleets.  The women's fleet races on Mondays, small boats race on Tuesdays.  Big boats race on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  And the double handed fleet races on Fridays.

You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here.  And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
